Caprese Skewers with a Balsamic Glaze

Serves: 4 | Prep time: 15 mins | Cook time: 10 mins

Ingredients:

16 red cherry or grape tomatoes
16 yellow cherry or grape tomatoes
32 medium fresh basil leaves, washed and patted dry
16 Ciliegine (mini-Mozzarella balls)
1 c. balsamic vinegar

Optional:

2 T. high-quality extra-virgin olive oil to drizzle

 

Additional equipment:

16 6” wooden skewers

 

Directions:

  1. Thread a red tomato onto a wooden skewer. Next, fold one basil leaf in half, dark side facing out, and add it to the skewer. Add one mini-Mozzarella ball, followed by another folded basil leaf, and one yellow cherry or grape tomato, in order.
  2. Repeat Step #1 with the remaining tomatoes, basil, and Mozzarella until you have 16 completed skewers. Arrange on a serving platter and set aside.
